Song of Freedom is an anthem for our times, a call for justice and freedom to come in a new way as people take following the ways of Jesus seriously.
It was originally sung at the Sorry Day worship gathering at Newtown Mission with input from Aboriginal Christian Leader Brooke Prentis and then sung all over these lands we now call Australia as part of the #ChangetheHeart prayer services, a call from Aunty Jean Phillips for the church to pray in the lead up to Jan 26.

Sing a song of freedom
Sing a song of love
Sing with hope that hope will come
And Christ will come in us
We're longing for redemption
For true freedom to come
A fully giving over to the perfect way of love
We're praying for revival
That we would count the cost
Giving ourselves over to the way of the cross
Complacent days are over
It's time to make a stand
Listen to the voices calling out across these lands
They're crying out for justice
For the truth yet to be told
Our hearts to be unsettled as the ancient paths unfold
Jesus, you came, to save, to save
Jesus, you gave your life, to unveil, unveil
Jesus, you rose from the grave, to unchain, unchain
Jesus, you're restoring it all, for all, in all
